The Big Bear Ranch House is located at the end of the road in a gradual canyon, surrounded by orchards and sagebrush slopes.  At the Big Bear we highly value the outdoors and did our best to let the sights of the outdoors in, with floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides of the great room and a gas fireplace to take off the winter chill.  Relax by a roaring fire with a book or board game and enjoy a territorial view of the Yakima Valley from the front room. You can take in vistas of the Cascades while walking the canal just out the back door.  The activity options in the Yakima Valley and surrounding mountains are endless, located in the center of Washington state in the high desert country of the Cascade Mountains: hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, wine touring, fine dining or just kicking back and enjoying the quiet are all yours. All of this, while jumping on Highway 12 will take you into downtown Yakima in 20 minutes. The Big Bear Ranch House is a getaway for business or pleasure! 

We are horse people and welcome your mules with prior approval!

Also, if you want to ride ATVs or bikes, we have ample parking and turnaround for your trailers.

We welcome well-behaved pets with prior approval and ask for a $15 pet fee per pet per night (up to $150), which we will collect after the booking is complete, thanks! No dogs allowed on beds or furniture please. Limit of 2 dogs per stay.

Check in Instructions

The address is 940 Shadbolt Road, Yakima, WA. Google maps will reliably get you there. You turn north on Eschbach Road off Highway 12, go about a mile and at the “T” make a right (east).  About 1 more mile you will see on the right a small reflector and on the left a gravel road. That is Shadbolt Road and the sign is back a bit. It indicates a dead end. The Ranch House is located at the very end, exactly one mile from Old Naches Highway. The road continues past houses, “end of county road sign” through orchards. At the end are a few houses, you stay to the left and the road ends at the Big Bear Ranch House. Green composite roofing and cedar siding. Please park on the side and use that door with the keypad to enter. 

The door code is currently  002803. Please be sure to always close this door firmly so the knob latches (strong winds can blow the door open if it is unlocked and not fully closed). 

Check Out Instructions

Please strip the linens off the beds that you used and leave them in front of the laundry machine. 

Please start a load of linens/towels. 

Please put all trash and recycling in the cans under the sink. Extra bags are available under the sink. If you take the trash out during your stay, put it in the dumpster on the property directly across from the house.

Please wash all the dishes and leave them to dry on the rack and start the dishwasher. 

Lock the doors and close the windows on your way out.

Travel safely!

Close to great hiking and food

"Bron Yr Aur is right down the road which is a great brewery with pizza, and then actual Yakima is about 10 minutes away. It's just outside of White Pass so tons of hiking and hunting opportunities." - Brandie Feb 2021

Fabulous location

"The ranch house was perfect for a quiet four night getaway. It’s tucked away down a dirt road, but the Yakima Greenway is only 2 miles away, and popular trails like Yakima Skyline & Snow Mountain Ranch are only a 25 minute drive." - Nicole Nov 2020
